Paladins: Champions of the Realm was the first game of Hi-Rez Studios’ released on the console. In 2015, it was released as a hero shooter game, and in 2016 it was released as a closed beta.

As Another game of Nintendo Switch is Shutting down soon, the Hi-Rez game Rogue Company will also shut down this year only.

The fans are not very happy with the announcement and they have shown their disappointment on Twitter. Paladins do not allow for cross-progression on PlayStation 4 which will limit the ability to carry forward the progress of the players.

Fall Guys and Fortnite are among the games that offer proper support for cross-progression on Nintendo Switch. These games also face performance issues as they run at lower framerates. In comparison to other consoles, Switch does not have much power, and therefore optimization problems in the games have become very common.

The optimization issues are not exclusive to multiplayer games because the Switch version of Skyrim: Anniversary Edition also suffered the same issues. There is no news of modern games becoming graphically intensive or that the Switch model is also not becoming powerful. Due to this, there are chances that the games will either be delisted from the console or they will not be ported.
